Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius - but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia...  When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a fight between the king and queen of the fairies.

Throw a speakeasy style nightclub and a 1930s style jazz band into the mix and you have one colourful, chaotic party.

One of Shakespeare's most magical comedies, this is a witty, glittering and amazingly inventive romp through one remarkable midsummer's night in the forest.
